Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford on the Emmys on 'Today'The 2011 Emmy Awards air Sunday, and Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb took a look at the field Friday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) with People Magazine's style and beauty editor Pamela Edwards Christiani. They went through the major categories and picked a few favorites from 'Mad Men,' 'The Good Wife,' and 'The Office.'

Christiani picked Jon Hamm over Steve Buscemi, Kyle Chandler, Michael C. Hall, Hugh Laurie, and Timothy Olyphant for lead actor in a drama. "It's his year. I don't know if you paid attention to 'Mad Men' last season, his character was so intense. The downward spiral -- Don Draper brought it to us this year." She also likes Julianna Margulies for 'The Good Wife,' citing the show's critical acclaim and fan popularity.

Steve Carell and Jimmy Fallon Compare 'Ambiguously Gay Duo' Gary Voices (VIDEO)

Steve Carell, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'It was a reunion of two Garys on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) when Steve Carell joined Jimmy Fallon. Carell is the long-time voice of the sidekick superhero, Gary, in the Robert Smigel 'SNL' cartoon series 'The Ambiguously Gay Duo.'

This past season, though, the characters erupted into real-life during one short, with Jon Hamm stepping in as Ace and Jimmy Fallon as his counterpart Gary.

Carell decided that they needed to each do the voice, in a kind of competition to see where things stack up, so he came up with an appropriate line for Gary. Imagine a plug has come unplugged from a wall.

Steve Carell Misses His 'Office' Friends, But Says He Won't Be Back for Any Cameos (VIDEO)

Matt Lauer, Steve Carell, and Julianne Moore on 'Today'Steve Carell is one of the funniest comedic actors around, but every so often he's called upon to play it straight. Matt Lauer brought up Carell's versatility on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), when he and Julianne Moore stopped by to promote their new film, 'Crazy, Stupid, Love.' He asked Carell if he felt comfortable doing drama, and also how it felt to see 'The Office' go on without him.

To answer Lauer's first question, Carell said, "Yes, I am a very fine dramatic actor. I know that's the point you were trying to make." Lauer laughed and said he wanted Carell to say it himself. "Well, I wanted to say it, and I was hoping that that subject would come up, because I really have a lot of pride in my dynamic dramatic acting," Carell deadpanned, motioning toward Moore. "She was so intimidated by me."

Steve Carell Comes Back for Some Abuse From 'Papa Bear' Jon Stewart (VIDEO)

Steve Carell on 'The Daily Show'Steve Carell's rise to superstardom really kicked off when he was a correspondent on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) from 1999-2005. From there, of course, he moved on to 'The Office,' where he reigned supreme until he left the show this past season.

As expected, Carell's talk with Jon Stewart was one of the funniest interviews we've seen on the show in a while. We loved Stewart trying to make Carell feel better after the cancellation of his show.

"Well, the show didn't get canceled," Carell told him. "The show continues."

Steve Carell, James SpaderThe new 'Office' boss has Michael Scott's blessing ... sort of.

Steve Carell, who played Michael Scott on 'The Office' for seven years, said he thinks James Spader is a great addition to 'The Office' cast.

"I think it's an excellent choice," Carell told Access Hollywood. "I think it's great and he will infuse all this new energy into the show."

'Boston Legal' veteran Spader will reprise his role from the Season 7 finale, Robert California, and replace Kathy Bates' CEO character. Spader's character originally interviewed for Michael Scott's vacated branch manager position. Fans will learn the character was hired to run the Scranton branch, but then quickly worked his way up the corporate ladder to become the CEO of Dunder Mifflin Sabre.

'The Office': 'Michael's Last Dundies' Preview (VIDEO)

The Office, Michael's Last DundiesIt's Michael Scott's last Dundies ceremony on 'The Office,' but he's not leaving without one heck of a show.

If these promo clips from the appropriately titled 'Michael's Last Dundies' (Thursday, 9PM on NBC) are any indication, the episode will be one to remember.

Watch for Meredith's big win and surprising kiss, a war of words between Ryan and Pam (over crack and breadsticks, naturally) and a very, very nervous DeAngelo (Will Ferrell).

Will DeAngelo be able to fill Michael's shoes?

'The Office' - 'Secretary's Day' Recap

(S06E22) We haven't heard from the folks at Dunder Mifflin Scranton for almost a month, and it's refreshing that the first episode back, the antics are generally related to office-specific issues. Well, at least the better part of the episode was office-related.

Liz Lemon and Michael Scott on a 'Date Night'? Yes, Please

by Gabrielle Dunn, posted Apr 9th 2010 2:45PM
Date Night'30 Rock's' cat-lady-in-training Liz Lemon and 'The Office's' outrageously awkward Michael Scott seem like the perfect crossover comedy couple.

In fact, they would make such a hilarious pair, we wish Lemon had been Scott's blind date on the most recent episode of 'The Office,' if only so we could have seen a harried Liz contend with Scott's alter-ego, 'Date Mike.'

The casting directors for the movie 'Date Night' must have thought so too when they cast Lemon's Tina Fey and Scott's Steve Carell as a married couple, in a move that overjoyed every die-hard comedy nerd.

According to Fey, her all-time worst date involved a man who insulted her weight. "I had one guy on a date tell me, 'Oh, you'd be really pretty if you lost weight,'" Fey said.

Steve Carell on 'The Daily Show'Steve Carell appeared on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) to promote his new movie, 'Date Night.' Unfortunately, even though they worked together for many years, host Jon Stewart had a little trouble remembering who he was. First, Stewart showed the wrong movie clip -- a clip from 'The Hangover,' which starred a different ex-'Daily Show' cast member. Oh well.

Tina Fey Grills Oprah Winfrey on Relationship With Jamie Foxx (VIDEO)

Oprah WinfreyTina Fey got to turn the tables on Oprah Winfrey and pressed the talk show queen about her relationship with Jamie Foxx.

"What is going on with you and Jamie Foxx?" Fey asked Winfrey on 'Oprah Winfrey' (weekdays, syndicated). "Because I feel like he might be in love with you ... there's an energy, he's putting something out."

Winfrey denied anything romantic, claiming the two were just friends, but Fey seemed skeptical. Winfrey sounded impressed with Fey's questioning -- and flirty footage. "That's good," Winfrey said with surprise. "That's a real question."

Fey and Carell Prove That The Gap Between TV and Movie Stardom is Disappearing

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 5th 2010 4:02PM
Steve Carell and Tina Fey in 'Date Night'Let me start this post off by getting this out of the way right now: I have no idea whether 'Date Night,' the new big-screen comedy from Tina Fey and Steve Carell coming out on Friday, is any good, or whether it'll make any money. From what I can see from the ads, it isn't looking promising, but good movies have been victimized by bad ads for as long as TV and movies have co-existed.

What has been the most remarkable about the promotion and marketing of this movie, though, has been this: Nothing, from the movie ads to the breathless previews on entertainment channels, to any of the print stories, are making a big deal that this movie is headlined two (gulp) television stars. And it's the career paths of both Fey and Carell that make this so refreshing.

Kids Choice Awards 2010 Winners: A Fine Slime Time

It was all slime and smiles at Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards 2010, with plenty of celebrities getting the green goo treatment, including host Kevin James. Even Tina Fey and Steve Carell, co-stars in the upcoming 'Date Night,' came out for the very purpose of getting super-slimed.

'The Office' - 'Happy Hour' Recap

Lauri Naughton Okin, Amy Pietz and Steve Carell in 'The Office' - 'Happy Hour'
(S06E20)
If you took this episode and dropped it in the middle of season two or three, it probably would have fit in nicely. Well, except for the fact that you might be asking why Pam was on maternity leave (and why Jim is the dad), why Andy is working in Scranton, and just who the hell Erin is.

But you know what I'm getting at. The tone, pacing, and comedy of this episode continues the recent trend of 'The Office' getting back to what made people love it to begin with. And, yes, part of that means that Michael is going to make an ass of himself. But at least the season six version of Michael somehow gets a little bit of hope mixed in with his desperation stew.

'The Office' - 'New Leads' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 19th 2010 10:03AM
John Krasinski in 'The Office' - 'New Leads'(S06E19) It's starting to feel like Sabre's purchase of Dunder-Mifflin was just the jumping-odd point the writers needed to bring the Scranton branch dynamic back to something that feels like the old days. For the second week in a row, we have an episode that felt very much like the ones from the first couple of seasons -- without the Jim/Pam drama -- with the entire office interacting with each other and a large amount of mistrust floating about. And it made for one of the funniest episodes in years.

With sales being king at Sabre, the sales staff was letting their elevated status go to their heads. This brings about some interesting character aspects we haven't seen much of. Phyllis, for instance, gets to take her status out on Michael, who's embarrassed her any number of times, and Angela, who she just plain hates. Andy walks out of a tedious Michael-called meeting. Stanley actually looks like he's doing work. It's amazing how a high commission can motivate even the most sedentary salesperson, huh?
